Last Sunday (15th Feb 2009) I went to Malyadi Bird Sanctuary. This is an abandoned clay query 9 kms away from Kundapura inhabited by water birds for the swampy land created by collected rain water in the left over clay fields. This year I was little late to reach there. Usually I used to go in the month of January. This birds were much less in number as well as variety.
Here is a common swallow (also called Barn Swallow) Hirundo rustica sitting on the wooden post beside the swamp. Shot using Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM using Giottos Monopod as support.
